Visual Studio Live! Celebrates 20 Years

2013 marks the 20th anniversary for Visual Studio Live! (formerly VBITS), a premiere event for the developer community that provides real-world, practical information and training on Microsoft platform technologies. This year, Visual Studio Live! continues the tradition as one of the longest running and best-known developer conferences in the United States by offering four exciting event locations: Las Vegas, Chicago, Microsoft Headquarters (Redmond, WA), and Orlando.

“2012 saw Visual Studio Live! grow in the number of events, amount of attendees and span of educational topics,” said Brent Sutton, Senior Event Director of Visual Studio Live! “2013 is shaping up to continue that trend, with more developer deep dives and co-located events that will benefit Visual Studio Live! attendees and sponsors.”

Visual Studio Live! 2013 Conferences:

  • Visual Studio Live! Las VegasMGM Grand Hotel and Casino – March 25-29
    **Co-located with Modern Apps Live! and featuring Developer Deep Dives on SQL Server and SharePoint / Office**

Each of the multi-track events include focused, cutting-edge education on the .NET platform taught by an expert faculty – including many Microsoft instructors – who make each session interactive. This unique environment creates an opportunity for attendees to discuss particular development roadblocks and walk away with actionable solutions.

In addition to the educational sessions and workshops, Visual Studio Live! attendees are also interested in learning more about building, buying and managing the development process within their organizations.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
